Enhanced Oil Resources, Inc. Announces 37% Increase in Potential CO2 Reserves at St. Johns Helium/Carbon Dioxide Field.



    HOUSTON, TX, June 5 /CNW/ - Enhanced Oil Resources, Inc. (TSX-V: EOR)
today announced the results of the 2008 Cobb Report, a resource evaluation
report of the Helium (He) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) reserves within the Company
controlled St. Johns He/CO2 field located in Apache County, Arizona and Catron
County, New Mexico.
    W.M. Cobb and Associates was commissioned by the Company to update the
previous reports completed by Cobb in 1999 and most recently in 2005 and has
incorporated all new information gathered in the Field since 2005. To date,
there have been 36 wells drilled within the St Johns field with 15 wells
completed for long term testing. Recent gas flow rates in the Field have been
as high as 6.5 million cubic feet per day (mmcfpd) and have confirmed that the
resource has considerable deliverability potential.
    The latest results have indicated that the St Johns resource is
potentially significantly larger than earlier estimates had suggested with
potentially recoverable reserves increasing to 8 trillion cubic feet (TCF) of
CO2 and 33 billion cubic feet (BCF) of Helium over a 40 year life. With the
higher deliverability of in excess of 6 mmcfpd per well achieved from the most
recent wells the 20 year production outlook has increased to 6.6 TCF of CO2
and 26 BCF of Helium.

    
    The latest results have been summarized into the following table:

    The results and data incorporated into this study have now been provided
to the Cawley, Gillespie & Associates consultant engineering company who will
now prepare a Reserve Report along the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE)
guidelines to determine the current distribution of proven, probable and
possible recoverable reserves at St. Johns.
    Barry Lasker, President and Chief Executive Officer of Enhanced Oil
Resources said: "The results from the latest resource evaluation report from
W.M. Cobb and Associates has confirmed that the St. Johns gas field is
potentially considerably larger than earlier estimates had suggested and the
higher production rates achieved this year from our most recent drilling
indicates that significant reserves may be produced over a 20 year period. In
this age of high oil prices there is considerable interest in carbon dioxide
flooding to enhance oil production from mature, depleted oil fields. The
Company stands ready to develop the St. Johns field as soon as possible in
order to capture value associated with CO2 flooding its own oil fields in the
Permian basin and to supply additional CO2 to other producers in the area."
